Attention TMNT fans – Megan Fox is officially playing April O’Neil in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie.
I have been a fan of the turtles since the 80’s and don’t know how I feel about a reboot. What do you all think? Do the turtles need a reboot?
Michael Bay made the official announcement simply by saying: TMNT: We Are Bringing Megan Fox Back Into The Family on his website.
Do you guys think Fox is the right person to play April O’Neil? I’m not convinced…
Fox and Bay reconciled over a series of recent meetings and that one tete-a-tete that won her over was with director Jonathan Liebesman, who wowed her with the storyboards, according to insiders. (Bay is not directing the movie but producing it via his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form.)
The movie is in the casting stage and last week was testing actors, mostly relative unknowns, for the roles of the Ninjas – Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael – which will be motion-captured.
